Yin And YANG

Ivory and black come together to create opulence this Fall...
opposites attract
The two opposite shades of elegance when blended seamlessly give way to the season’s statement looks. Designers are indulging the use of ivory and black to achieve a timelessly classic appeal. Accentuate it with subtle embroidery or top it up with ornate embellishment; wear it plush and fitted in velvet or add some flounce with chiffon and silk—the options are endless. Move aside colour, this new season is all about understated looks that define opulence in a restrained manner.

Haute HOBO

The new wave of urban hippies has the fashion fraternity in a frenzy...
on the road
Quirky and out-of-the-box separates layered sloppily is not a fashion faux pas anymore. Struck by wanderlust, this new age gypsy is carefree yet chic. A knot here, a fold there; prints clash and mismatch to add to the drama. The silhouettes are flowy, the accessories bold yet boho. Play with fabrics ranging from wool to cotton; from knitted overalls to block-printed dhotis. With delibritely unkempt hair and minimal make-up to compliment this look, sport a carefree attitude for maximum impact.
